Opinion Line Extra (Dec. 17)

Instead of complaining about the city staff and then going to Africa, China, etc., why doesn’t the full-time Wichita mayor stay here in Wichita solving problems?

It’s astounding that some people believe The Wichita Eagle does not cater to its conservative readers. Any newspaper that regularly features the writings of Cal Thomas, Charles Krauthammer and Kathleen Parker can hardly be considered part of the “liberal media.”

Now that the “new and improved” concept pioneer, Steve Jobs, is on His side, expect the updated iPad versions of all the world Holy Scriptures, most of which are thousands of years outdated, available at a Holy place near you.

Why would any sane, intelligent person still support a political party that’s responsible for the largest tax increase – known here as Obamacare and everywhere else as socialized medicine – ever perpetrated on its citizens in this country’s history and, along with it, financial, physical and emotional harm as well as death?

Michelle Obama is now controlling what students can and cannot eat in their school cafeteria. That’s funny – I don’t remember the American people ever electing her into a political position.

About now Ron Paul must be wondering, “Where did I go wrong with Rand?” Rand Paul’s views are so narrow, he has to be slightly cross-eyed.

More than half of the world’s leaders attended Nelson Mandela’s memorial service. That speaks volumes about the man and his achievements.

Margaret Thatcher was a thug who did her best to eliminate the middle class, just like her buddy Ronald Reagan.

Seriously, the U.S. spends $700 billion on defense, and Japan builds a giant robot before us? Forget nuclear deterrents. Robot deterrents are where it’s at.

Instead of just handing out money to those in need, our government should try to encourage them to find jobs and become contributing members of society. Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish, feed him for life.

No one seems to care that the NFL recently saw the all-time high in touchdowns scored in a single weekend. They would rather talk about how Obama is messing up our country. I think people should strive to focus on the good in the world today, like football.

Why does the DMV have to quiz us over dumb stuff? When I’m driving in the dark, I’m not going to worry about turning my high beams off in 500 feet. I’m going to worry about seeing in the dark.

If all a high school final can do is hurt your GPA going into college, then students should not be obligated to take it.

Why don’t teens have iPads in school? We would be saving paper.

As a teen concerned for my generation, I am happy to see others looking to Jennifer Lawrence as a positive role model. I just wish there were more like her.
